Join the Rotary Club of Dearborn to celebrate its 100 years of “Service Above Self” with a musical extravaganza on Saturday, March 18, 2023 at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center, 15801 Michigan Avenue in Dearborn.

“Our club has worked on this centennial event for the past year,” said Shannon Peterson, who serves as club co-president with Colleen Nieman during the 2022-23 Rotary year.

According to Peterson, plans were well underway for an anniversary celebration and community fundraiser under the leadership of Dearborn Rotarian Rick Goward when he died unexpectedly in January 2022.

Peterson said, “Among Rick’s many gifts and talents as the music director of Henry Ford College and Henry Ford College Big Band before he retired, he was a visionary with far reaching goals for our club. With the community’s support, we will honor his goals.”

Funds raised from the event will be used in collaboration with the City of Dearborn to renovate the Henry Ford Centennial Library auditorium, meeting current ADA standards for accessible design and seating and to upgrade technology.

Sponsorships and tickets for the March 18, 2023, fundraising event are available at www.DearbornRotary.org. Ticket purchases for the concert are also available through the box office of the Michael A. Guido Theater – online or in person during box office hours.
